My Birthday Party

With our floral dresses on, we headed down the street with a large thermos of homemade black iced tea.  I made two kinds of skewers: the first were mozzarella, cherry tomato, and basil with oil and balsamic vinegar.   The other, a mixed fruit with banana, nectarine, and mango.  Kate made cucumber sandwiches and Angharad baked vanilla cupcakes.
